The Australian Industry Group, which represents many different manufacturing industries, aims to provide a harmonized and safe work environment by helping its members identify the risks within their workplace and respond to those risks by taking specific measures of compliance with the Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) legislation in their respective states. This short report presents a summary of the issues and core areas of study within the Australian OHS legislation.
The OHS legislation lays on the employers the ultimate responsibility of providing a safe and healthy work environment to all the employees. Employers include all types of manufacturers, designers, suppliers, and occupiers. A safe environment is the one that doesn’t expose any risk to the employee or endanger his/her life. Ai Group helps its members in understanding the requirements of the OHS legislation and helping them in enforcing the law in an effective and efficient manner.
